Brett Rolle, an amazing drummer from the Junkanoo troupe Colours.
Brett, like the other Bahamians I met, was proud of his culture and willing to go out of his way to let me experience a little bit of it during my brief visit. He was quite amused at my giddiness and how many times I said with excitement, “this is so cool!” Among the priceless things we are lucky enough to experience sometimes in our lives I’ll say this:
Discovering a culture beyond my humble imagination: Awesome!
Thanks a million Brett, Charo Walker, Gary St. Louis and Anthony Etienne of Gaza Boys, Donald Ellis of Music Makers and all the others who gave me a taste and left me wanting to know more.
